- As of 1.2, Heavy Skeletons never spawn anymore, and are replaced by Armored Skeletons. This is due to the fact that certain enemies can now have different sizes, along with slightly changed stats, like defense, health, and damage.
- Prior to 1.2, Heavy Skeletons were larger versions of Armored Skeletons, with increased defense and damage.
- Armored Skeletons appear to be wearing a bluer variation of the Ancient Cobalt Breastplate with spiked shoulder guards.
